    John DOH's Note:

    Salmon is the "perfect fish"; it crawls with Omega acids, is delicious in all aspects, and when done in an "ancient" way over flames, really surpasses itself. I tried "planking" salmon until I got to this "recipe" and method, which our family decided they liked best-my wife claims she'd eat it seven days a week.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Acquire a "cedar plank"; these are available at our local grocery stores, though I admit I like the thick ones, about 3/4" thickness. Soak in water at least one hour.
    2. 2
      Dust "smooth" surface of plank with sea salt.
    3. 3
      Lay fillet on the plank, and salt, generously, with sea salt.
    4. 4
      Light up the BBQ, leaving one side hot and the other side at minimum setting.
    5. 5
      Lay the planked salmon over the cool side of the grill, add 3-4 cups of either mesquite or alder wood chips onto the hot side, close BBQ hood.
    6. 6
      When flames start to happen with the chips, douse these quickly with water (just once!) and allow the fish to cook about 25 minutes.
    7. 7
      Extinguish the "cool burner at this point, and reduce the hot side to 33% output.
    8. 8
      Allow fish to cook to the "dore" colouring (reddish orange), about another 25-35 minutes, all with the hood closed.
    9. 9
      I know this sounds "overcooked" but I encourage you to try it! We serve this with raw garden veggies (tomato, cucumber, radish, carrot spears, fresh green pepper, etc) with a creamy herbed dip -- very "light" eating, perfect for the hot and humid summer weather.
